The Junior League of Austin

Junior League of Austin - A Christmas Affair

A Christmas Affair is the largest fundraiser for The Junior League of Austin allowing us to further our mission. The $750,000 raised through the four-day shopping experience helps our 2,500 members:

  • Feed 1,600 children suffering from food insecurity each week during the school year through our signature program, Food in Tummies
  • Provide approximately 35,000 coats annually to children who don’t otherwise have a warm winter coat through Coats for Kids
  • Volunteer and provide financial support to 29+ community nonprofits

A Christmas Affair hosts approximately 200-vendors in a themed shopping extravaganza which includes parties, children’s events, a private shopping brunch, and the season’s biggest celebrity, Santa! Click here for pictures from last year’s A Christmas Affair.

Thank you to our sponsors for their generous support. The A Christmas Affair sponsorship brochure & benefits schedule is available here! If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact The Junior League of Austin Fund Development Vice President at funddevelopmentvp@jlaustin.org.
